Roraima Cat Toy

Animals are awesome. I will take a dog over a human being any day. Even if they judge you, you don't have to hear them say it. haha Seriously though, animals give the best love. We can show our love back, with good food, lots of love, and many, many toys.


This hasn't been in our home very long, neither have our kitties. They are finally starting to come around these, but they are still getting use to us as well.

When they do get in the playing mood, I will hear the bell inside the ball, multiple times. It seems like each time, they play a bit more with it. Since they are little, they haven't really damaged the toy yet. A bigger cat, may be able to tear it apart.


The ball itself, is shaped with rope in yellow and pink. A string on the bottom, connects a multi colored set of feathers. It seems to be pretty well made, with quality stuff. It also seems to be put together well, but there are a lot fo strings hanging off. Looks wise though, it is pretty neat.

 Of course, you can't forget the bell inside the ball. If your pets play with this toy a lot, the bell will annoy the crap out of you. I have found myself, throwing this thing down the hall and into another room, just to get it away, so I didn't have to hear it anymore.


Now my personal petty problems... This product is an add on item. I don't have much money, so I had to use a trick and then it cost more than what it was suppose to, and they will not answer any of my emails or messages.  I hope you have better luck. Remember, you must order $25 worth of items, to even order it.

My kitties seem to be warming up to it, If you think your furbabies will like it as well, head on over to the Amazon product page.

Alex Craft Jewelry Stones

I hope you all remember that beautiful crystal necklace I reviewed last week. If not, please scroll down the main page and find it. That one was a lot of fun.




What's better than one crystal? 9 different, but beautiful stones. These do NOT come with chains, but those can be obtained easily, especially for actual jewelry makers. Ball chain necklaces often come in big sets for free.


There are many things you can do with these. Wear them in your jewelry, decor around the house, and of course for healing as well. People use these stones for many different things and this is a great little starter set.




To me, the price is nice for the amount you get and of course for how gorgeous they are. The quality is pretty nice as well. The tops seem to be secure and they can definitely hold on a chain without risk of them breaking apart.


This set is awesome, no matter what you are using them for. Please go to the Amazon product page and check them out.

Caramella Bubble Emoji Plush

In case you didn't get your emoji fill on the last post, this load of adorable, will definitely give you your fill. In the spirit of honesty, these plushes are adorable and creepy all at the same time, I will definitely explain why later.


First, you get two of these plushes when you order, for the price, that is awesome! I have no idea if these are random or not, but, I got an emoji with heart eyes, and one winking and blowing a kiss with a heart.


They are about a foot tall, so a pretty good size. Most of that is head, and here is where I get into the creepy comment. If you change the head a tiny bit, they could be aliens. Huge head, with a tiny and worthless body. I had hoped that they would be pretty stuffed, so that they could stand. That is not the case.


When you squeeze them, they feel great, the plush is nice, almost like a soft blanket. BUT, you can tell they skimped on the stuffing. The head can get away with that, but the body, like I said, it is pretty much worthless. If they were to add more stuffing, the body would be perfect.


Of course, the stuffing thing is my preference, but I liken it to just a bit more than some dog toys ahve in them. If that helps you to imagine it better. Less stuffing may be your thing, and hey, you can always buy your own stuffing and pack some more in.


No matter what, these are really fun, I don't believe, I have seen any others liek this with bodies. With a few tweaks, they could really make some money while the fad lasts.

We are enjoying these dolls, my husband already put them up on our "toy" shelf. If emojis are your thing, make sure you not only check out this product on Amazon, but make suure you click their name. They have many more emoji items.

Caramella Bubble Emoji Toothbrush Holders

It is no secret, that my family and I like Emojis. Usually, we stay away from the crazes and the fads, but darn it, these little guys are cute. Let's face it, most of us use them, multiple times a day. They are a great way to provide insight into your mood, through the phone or the computer. I know I am guilty of coming across a bit rude while texting, even while making a joke.


There are many things out there, made around an emoji. Brushes, chairs, stuffed animals, and now? Toothbrush holders. This is definitely something I wouldn't have thought of for this market and I think it is a great idea. Any time you can be the first to do something (again this is the first time hearing of Emoji toothbrush holders) you have to jump on it and make that money. Fads come and go quickly.


The first thing I want to bring up, and it is a bit of a gripe. On the Amazon page for this product, they have an emoji holder on there, and my husband fell in love with it. It has a beanie hat on and a cigar hanging out of his mouth. When the box came and it wasn't inside, he was crushed and has bugged me about it ever since. Basically, what I am trying to say is, it may be random. You might just get 12 that they decide and you have no idea what you are getting. My advice for them, if they read this, put it on your Amazon, that they are random and you may not get every single one shown. Believe me, someone else will mention it, but they will do it on an Amazon review.

Now, on to the best part, what I love about these. This is definitely something that I didn't know I needed. There is a cup or a holder already in the bathroom. Once I saw them I fell in love with them though. Plus, I have a window in the bathroom (I HATE windows in bathrooms!!!) and I am always looking for ways to cover it up or parts of it at least, so these are perfect.

Each emoji, comes in its own bag with the suction cup already attached to it, meaning, there is nothing to put together. The packages are clear, so you can easily see all of them and pick the one you like the best.

All there is left to do, is take it out of the package, wet the cup a bit, and stick it to a mirror or window. The toothbrush just slides into between the legs and hangs there. The faces are pretty much hidden when the brush is in there, a little bit of a bigger head, might help, but you can still see the eyes.


So far, our holders have been up there for a few days. They haven't slipped, slide, or come off of the window yet. They are also really easy to clean. We put our brushes towards the inside to minimize the germs in the air getting to them, plus it looks better for guests.


My kids and I really love these and they work well for us. Everyone picked their own, so there are no fights about toothbrushes, or toothbrush holders and all the brushes get put back each time, something that never happened before!


If these interest you, I have another product coming from Carmella Bubbles, so look out for that blog post. In the meantime, you should go over and check these toothbrush holders on Amazon.

Fairyland Beauty Sponge Kit

Sixteen year old Jess, could NOT tell you what any beauty products were. I know this has been said before, but I was not a girly girl. Black was and still is my favorite color. Since I got married though, I have been really trying to look my best for my husband. I think they deserve it, come on ladies, you know we put them through A LOT.


This really is a cool beauty belnder kit. You get 3 makeup sponge blenders and the cute holder that comes with it AND 2 silicone blenders with a carrying case, Plus a case to store all the extras in. Now do you see why I said it is an awesome kit??


Everything seems to be made really well. Even the case, which looks like cheap plastic, shuts tight, so it won't come lose and cover everything in your purse with make up. That is a huge plus for me. I rarely take make up on the go, but when I do, I usually put it in a ziploc bag to stay safe.


So far, they have worked really well with my blending. Both are very soft on the skin and I love the way they contour to your face, to really get your make up every where you need it to be, and doing a good job at it.


My mom is so old school, she doesn't even really care for make up brushes. It took a lot for me to get her to try them. Guess what, she loved them like I thought she would. They are now a part of her routine.

We both love them and I think you will as well. Please go and check them out on Amazon, it really is an amazing set.

DIY Carry Pouch

For years, I have seen people making pencil pouches out of candy wrappers. I thought to myself, there has to be an easier way. Since I'm not in school anymore, I also wanted something smaller.


Since I wanted smaller, I went with a Big League Chew package. After I gave the gum another home of course. Next I gathered up a ZIPLOCK BAG, HOT GLUE GUN AND STICKS, and anything you want to use to decorate your bag. I personally like it the way it is.



First, make sure the inside of the bag is cleaned out. That gum leaves a lot of dust and you don't want that all over your stuff.. or maybe you do. Either way, you decide, clean or not, sit it to the side.


Next pick up the ziploc bag and cut off the top, "zipper" portion. Cut it to fit inside of the gum package. Put a few dots all along both sides of the wrapper of glue from the hot glue gun. I kept them apart so they didn't get glued together. Once they were both dry, I opened and closed it a few times to make sure it will work.


If you happen to use too much glue, it may be harder to close the bag, so watch out how much you put on there. At this point, I'm done with mine. It's ready to go with me as a purse or at home for other things. You can go on to decorate it anyway you want.


There ya go, a nice simple DIY. It took me a whole five minutes to get mine done. i'm actually loving this little package, it is essentially a ziploc Bag, great way to recycle and DIY.



As always, thank you so much for reading, I really hope you leave me your ideas below. Have an amazing day!

DIy Storage Bin

Storage seems to be my DIY theme lately. I guess that is because, I just can't justify spending the money, since we have NO money. Ha Ha Also, it is so much fun to experiment and decorate. Even though I am not very good at it. I need someone girly for that. :)


Anyway, on to the storage bin portion of this blog post. You all know, I tend to get off path with things and tend to ramble. Here is what I used, you may use other things, get creative!

Nesquik Can

Scissors

Craft Tape

Any additonal items you want to add to your bin as well.


I am all about simple and this is no different. To wrap it the way I did, choose two different kinds of tape. Start at the bottom wrapping as many times as you need to cover the bottom row of the can. I had to wrap two times. You then move up a little bit and do it again. Make sure that they aren't farther away then the width of your second tape.


Make your way up the can in this fashion. Next grab the other tape and do the same thing in the open spots all the way up the can. Careful on the top, you will have to keep folding it over as you wrap on the top row.


After that, just put something inside, because you are done! I decided to use mine for spatulas. Next one wiill be spoons. Right now they are taking up a whole drawer that I could use for better things. Plus I like the way it looks in my kitchen.


Well there you have it, another easy DIY, that only takes a few minutes and you get to recycle. As always, I thank you so much for reading and please leave those ideas below!!

DIY Storage Container

Growing up, I had no problem buying or getting the things that I neeeded, without worry. Adult me though, realizes, that life is all about work, and if you can't afford something, try to make it yourself.

I am all about making things that you probably already have in your home. There are even some DIY's, that I will keep the project shelved for months or years, until I can get all the materials needed, for free. That does make for a packed storage room though, and I have to start getting these out to your guys. As always, if you have ideas, let me know in the comments. :)

Now a little background... My bathroom is pretty small. There is storage space, but it is cramped and not nearly the amount that we need. Other reviewers know what I mean. We get a LOT of bathroom products and many continue to be used. Soooo... one day I was putting on my makeup and it was so annoying to have to keep opening up the door and getting out what I needed.



I gathered all of my materials first, just to make sure I have everything. I gathered the following:

Glue Gun and Sticks
Plastic Container (I used a gelato container)
Craft Tape
Box Cutter or other small Knife
Wall Fastener (I used 2 Coat Hanging Knobs)


To start out, take your knife and the plastic container. Cut a few small holes into the bottom (If you are using this for your make up brushes). You can do a long straight line that gets bigger, or holes that the make up brushes will fit down into.


My wall fasteners needed to go through the side of my container, so the holes had to be made there. After I am done making all of the holes, i wrapped the craft tape all around it, like a second skin. It took me a few layers, to stop the images on the container from coming through. (They aren't ones you can take off, I tried!! lol)


When it was looking all beautiful, I cut the holes back out again and slide the fasteners into the back of the container. Since they already have sticky tape on them, I peeled and stuck. Now, you can use a piece of wood, or some other crafty way to stick it to the wall, I just used some review product, I have had for awhile.


Then, all you have to do, is decide what to put in it!. If you were to screw it to the wall, you could put more items inside, then other methods. So depending on how you hang it, you have lots of options. Hairbrush/hair ties/bands, make up brushes/make up, perfumes and colognes, jewelery ETC


The best part about this, is I had everything on hand, plus you can hang them or just keep them on hand as a portable storage, and even in other rooms on the walls there. It's super easy to make, it took me more time to wrap it than it did to do all the rest of the tasks.


Speaking of decorating, make sure you make it into your own. Do something you love. Go crazy with all that fun art stuff. You can even let your kids make their own containers. It may make them keep at least a few things picked up.

I had so much fun making this and I think you will as well, like I said, it could be a fun craft day with the kids or your friends. As always, thank you all so much for reading!

Shower Genius Idea Board

Ever been in the shower and thought of a great idea? It sounds weird, but I know I have. My mind seems to run 24/7, it never stops. Always trying to think of ways to be a better reviewer and loads of other things.


When this thing popped up on Tomoson, I had to have it. Sight unseen of course because, I like to be surprised. The whole idea of it, was something that I need. Not only for my thoughts, but to leave reminders. We always have friends over and if things need done, I don't like people seeing the lists. This way, it can be out, we can see it, and the guests shouldn't ever know it exists.



Now on to the idea board. It looks to be a piece of hard plastic. It is definitely waterproof, there is nothing to ruin on that board. It also comes with the pencil to write with, a towel and the suction cups with hooks, to hang it in the shower. Thats it, it won't take up much room on the shower wall either, unless you have a really tiny shower.



All I did, was suction two cups to the shower wall. I wet them first to make sure they would stick. then I put the other two on the back of the board and hung it from them. It sticks really well so far, no matter how much steam comes from the shower.


Once that is done, get your ideas on and write them down. You can also leave sweet notes and other messages, or doodle. I think this is a fun idea and I have seen a few I Love You's already in the shower. It is definitely a great way to wake up.


If this is something you have heard of before, remember, those others need refills, this one can be used over and over again. All you have to do is wipe off the words and write some more. Fun and easy. Check it out on Amazon.
